Keane : "Call Me What You Like" EP


published: Fri 25th May 2001

Three quality songs that capture the Keane experience, nothing fast and furious, just crisp drawn out melodies proving that less is indeed more. Slightly haunting in places with catchy choruses, after a couple of listens you'll be muscling in on the vocals trying to hold the notes as long as Tom. You'll pick up hints of James, a flavour of Radiohead an ambience of The Doors in Richards drumming. 'Call me what you like' and 'Rubbernecking' the first and second track similar in tempo and style yet different but the best is last with 'Closer now.' A little faster but still within the realms of easy listening Toms vocals have a certain something which makes this track the more memorable of the three. The only person you'd offend by playing this would be a full on Raver who's banged three in quick succession but give them a couple of hours and it's great for the early morning chill-out.
